Any time a car is put into storage, the tires should be OVER_INFLATED & if possible the car put on jack stands. The battery disconnected & a small trickle charger hooked-up. There is a fuel treatment called *stabil* that should be added to the tank. The last thing is to install a car cover, even in a garage!! IF the car sits for over a year there is a few other items to take care of.

Thank you M.B. Doc. BUT...

What do you mean by trickle charger hooked up?
Also, is it better if I take off the wheels/tires?

I was under the impression that you should add Stabil to the tank and then run it so that the stabilizer makes the journey down the lines to the injectors.
